UDL-Aligned Strategies About UDL

  • Optimize relevance, value, and authenticity
    Instead of teachers presenting the 100 sight words in list of flash card form, teachers can write the words on to fish shaped paper and place them in a box with paper clips attached to each fish's mouth. Teachers can then have students place a magnet in the box to select a fish. When a fish is selected or "caught" the students can read and write the word selected.
  • UDL II 5.3 Build fluencies with graduated levels of support for practice and performance
    Before students read the list of words to the teacher, students can first practice reading the list in different settings. For example, students can first read the list of words for homework then with a peer in their class then a student in a class that is two grade levels above or below, finally the student can then attempt to read the list to the teacher.
  • UDL I 3.3 Guide information processing, visualization, and manipulation
    Instead of teachers providing students with a list of words, teachers can write the targeted sight words on flash cards. Using the flash cards, teachers can sit with the student and have the student read each card that is being held up.
